In the early morning hours of Saturday, November 7, 2020, San Angelo Police were dispatched to a residence in the 2200 block of Webster Avenue for the report of an unconscious infant.
When officers arrived, they located the unresponsive two-month-old female and administered life-saving measures while transporting the infant to Shannon Medical Center for treatment. Hospital Officials assessed the infant and advised officers that they observed injection sites on the infant’s extremities and head and that the infant’s urine tested positive for Heroin. Due to the severity of the infant’s condition, the infant was transported to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where she remains on life-support.
Detectives with the Department’s Crimes Against Children Unit responded and learned the infant’s 21-year-old mother, Destiney Harbour, had given birth to the infant at the residence in late August and that the infant had not received formal medical care since her birth. Investigators also discovered that Harbour’s mother, 37-year-old Christin Bradley, and Bradley’s boyfriend, 34-year-old Dustin Smock, had assisted with the infant’s care inside the home.
While executing a search warrant at the Webster residence, investigators located drug paraphernalia as well as a small quantity of suspected Heroin, Methamphetamine, marijuana, and pills.
Harbour, Bradley, and Smock have been charged with First Degree Felony Injury to a Child - Serious Bodily Injury. Their bonds were set to $100K and $50K respectively.
This is an ongoing investigation and additional charges may be forthcoming.
